Lincoln Electric® continues to expand its consumable portfolio with the latest innovative solution, UltraCore® HD Marine. This gas-shielded, flux-cored wire electrode, preferred for shipbuilding, is rooted in Lincoln Electric’s HD design platform to enable a flat bead shape when welding at high deposition rates in all positions.

This new electrode offers improved operator appeal over existing HD products through lower spatter and lower fume generation rates.

Specifically designed to supply the shipbuilding industry with a consistent and quality-tested welding consumable, UltraCore HD Marine meets most shipbuilding standards, including: ABS, DNV, LR, and BV. The 15-lb. spool package offers ease of handling and mobility, in order to increase the operating factor of sub-assemblies within shipyards.

UltraCore HD Marine performance characteristics include: High deposition rates up to 12 lbs. per hour out-of-position; Excellent operator appeal with minimal spatter and low fume generation rates; Improved arc stability with 100 percent CO2 shielding gas; Ability to weld in all positions with one setting; and Q2 lot controlled and tested with actual deposit composition and mechanical properties for each lot.
